4 takeaways from the Chicago Bears’ 2023 NFL Draft class

The dust has settled on the 2023 NFL draft, and the early returns for the Chicago Bears’ 10-player class have been positive. Most post-draft grades have Ryan Poles’ second draft as the Bears general manager ranked among the five best in the league.

It’s a fair assessment of this crop of rookies. It’s all speculative, of course, but at this time of year, that’s all we have. Speculation.

The Chicago Bears did a great job filling critical needs with quality players. Not every prospect Poles selected was an uber-productive college player, but they’ll enter the league with traits — good athletes with plus size — and pedigree. Many of this year’s Bears rookies are former five-star recruits.

Here are four major takeaways from the Chicago Bears’ 2023 NFL draft.
